ACT IV. SCENE 3. A room in the Garter Inn.

[Enter HOST and BARDOLPH.]

Sir, the Germans desire to have three of your horses; the Duke
himself will be to-morrow at court, and they are going to meet him.

Ay, sir; I'll call them to you.

They shall have my horses, but I'll make them pay; I'll sauce them;
they have had my house a week at command; I have turned away my
other guests. They must come off; I'll sauce them. Come.
